    Default Comet Lulin Flyby, 24 Feb

    Comet Lulin would make it's closest approach to earth on 24th feb. Would be around the vicinity of Leo / Saturn on that day. Don't think it's visible to the naked eye, least not in Singapore skies. Would be visible with a decent telescope or binos. Moves pretty fast (for astro standards).

    Don't ask me precisely where to look. I trying to find star maps of the comet's trajectory too.

    Saturn should be easy enought to find. It's magnitude 4-5, which means can be easily captured with long exposures. But not sure how big it is though.
